image files problems

Sorry to lay another one on you today Jason!

I have a couple of questions - they both relate to the same set of pages.

1. I have an insert/update for special offers. I have got it so that the update uploads an image and renames the image to be the same as the id column. I dont know how to get the insert to do the same....

2. As in 1 above, when the images have been uploaded I cannot get them to display either on the front end or i the back end at all. They were displaying fine this morning but not now

any help you can give gratefully appreciated...

right, have managed to 'fix' issue 2 - for some reason domain.co.uk/offers/special-offer-name was causing this due to the mod rewrite but changing it to domain.co.uk/offer/special-offer-name fixed it... why would changing /offers/ to /offer/ have that effect?

still not able to figure out how to address issue 1....

1) it's not possible to know the ID of the record before it is created. You would need to do the insert, the insert will store the ID in a session. then upload the file, using the session for the file name

2) Either the upload folder name is offer not offers, or something in your mod rewrite is renaming the folder.

how would I accomplish point 1 please Jason?

I outlined how to do it in my response.

the upload must happen after the insert.

the insert will save the ID in a session
use the session for the file name in the upload behavior.

you have the code for the upload file behavior before the inset record.

The record needs to be inserted first, before the file is uploaded.

oh right thanks

its uploading the image but if the record id is, for example, 21 its naming the image 20

also, its not adding the filename into the database column...
